Shojoucon seeking Volunteers

From the Shojou Con press release:

Due to our wildly successful debut this past July, Shoujocon, the premier convention devoted to girls' and women's anime and manga, promises to be bigger and better than ever! Of course, as a result we're experiencing some 'growing pains' and have new openings in our staff that need to be filled. We're opening our doors to ask for your help in putting together another one-of-a-kind convention event for 2001!

We're looking for volunteers to fill staff positions in the following committees:

- Guest Relations: Work closely with special guests of the convention to schedule and coordinate appearances; escort guests to and from con events during the con.

- Fundraising: Help organize and process fundraising eBay auctions; forge relationships with anime/manga industry organizations regarding sponsorship opportunities.

- Dealers' Room: Assist the DR chair with organization, solicitation, setup, and monitoring of the Dealers' Room.

- Entertainment: The Entertainment committee consists of several subgroups, each of which concentrates on a different event of the convention. The areas most in need of staff are:
* Workshops * Social (Party)
* Con Suite * Games
* Art Show/Room

- Security: Assist the Security chair with scheduling and supervision of con security staff and gophers. Preference is given to people 21 and over for this committee.

You won't receive coinage, but there are plenty of other rewards you'll receive for your contribution to Shoujocon:

Schmooze-A-Palooza! Spend a year with people who love what you love! Make new friends and learn the ropes of the convention circuit!

Peace of Mind! As a convention staff member, you'll be directly responsible for helping to make the North American anime & manga fan-scene a better, funner place!

Booty! As a token of our appreciation for your contribution of time and effort, you'll receive special gifts and perks exclusively for staff
